Veteran against Putin

Did somebody heard of this story where at the 60th Anniversary parade some Russian WWII veteran participatedin a counter demonstration againt Vladimir Putin. 50 of them were arrested.

I took that picture on the Internet edition of the German magazine "Der Spiegel".

If somebody has more on this event please post it.

By the way, the flag at the back look strangely like the Nazi one.

Those flags are quite well-known. The similarity is no coincidence. Used by nacionalist youth.
Ussually connected with Zhirinovski.

Look what I found about it.

"This is a flag of the National Bolshevik Party led by Eduard Limonov. The party's only a handful of extremist-minded students, but they are present at any rally that takes place in Moscow. They are calling for a revolution and extermination of all non-Russians in Russia".

Not big deal, but I got surprised anyway.

There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

The Who, Won't get fooled again
